The family of 6 month old Turk (German Shepherd) are raising money for his emergency Vet bills.

As some of you may know, our little 6 month old German Shepherd Puppy named Turk (who we lovingly call Turkey), recently had to be admitted to a 24 hour Animal Hospital on Labor Day 2012. The diagnosis was that his kidneys and liver are failing. This requires at least a week in the animal hospital and a lot of blood work and IV's to keep his fluid level up. This hospital visit was quoted to us as costing between $3000 and $4500. Added to this are the follow up visits and medication Turk might have to be on depending on his recovery. Turk was a wedding present to each other and we consider him family. We do not have kids and Turk has taken over that role. He is our handsome little boy who is the biggest snuggle buddy ever. He is such a lover and everyone that has ever met him can attest to that. We want to be able to give Turk the best care we can (within reason). We want to give him a fighting chance to try and beat this and be able to live out the fullest life that he can. Unfortunately it is going to cost us at possibly the worst time (financially) in our lives. We are not the type of people to ask for help, let alone ask people for money. Unfortunately we are swallowing our pride and asking for help on this one. Just know that you are helping provide care for and possibly save one of our family members, We do not know what life without Turk would be like. We thank you in advance for any support you can show.
